My first two cars

I know we had a thread a little while back re out first cars....

Here are my first two cars:
1) Alfasud 1.5 TI (although at this stage it had the single carb 84 bhp engine) (1981)
2) Alfasud TI Green Cloverleaf (1984) (scanned images)

Oh and the second image just catches the front end of a black 1981 1.5 TI I bought for £150 but never did anything with...

I don't know about that I think her mx-5 will be getting the driveway ...although there is a lot of on street parking! And I recently have developed a bit of a horn for a FL 166, I know in relationships there is such thing as the 7 year itch but is there such thing as a 3 year itch for cars?
